It’s often hard to accept or understand that stubborn areas of the body can be resistant to diet and exercise. Excess fat deposited around the body can be unappealing and uncomfortable. It’s easy to become frustrated when your body won’t cooperate with a new diet or increased physical activity.
Both men and women can adopt the pear- or apple-shaped physique over time, having fat collect in the upper or lower body. Fortunately, liposuction is an effective way to eliminate fat and achieve personalized results, and many individuals are choosing cosmetic surgery to alter their appearance.
Liposuction for Women
Men and women store fat differently and in different areas of the body. Along the abdomen, around the thighs or arms and the buttocks are common places for women to collect fat. Addressing these areas with targeted liposuction helps shape the body in places that just aren’t responding to exercise or a restricted diet.
Liposuction for Men
“Love handles” and a “beer gut” are affectionate terms commonly associated with the areas where men can see excess fat deposits, but men can collect fat in the arms, neck and face as well. Hormonal changes and aging can cause fat to collect where it never had before. Targeted liposuction can help counterbalance and correct these areas.
As with most cosmetic procedures today, liposuction can be individually tailored for best results. If you’re worried about certain areas of the body, it’s important to voice your concerns and discuss your options during a thorough consultation with your surgeon.
